'Fly Together!' (Switch) Announced - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on April 8, 2021 @ 8:38 a.m. PDT

Fly Together! takes players to the skies in a race against time to bring passengers safely to their destination by drawing flight paths and avoiding collisions in increasingly challenging action-puzzles.

Fly Solo or hand a Joy-Con to your friends and co-pilot through an expansive campaign. Draw flight paths in the air with a wave of your hand or play handheld with stick controls.

Complete contracts, upgrade your airport and collect a growing fleet of airplanes.

Fly against your friends in hectic up-to-8-player battles: throw meteors, invoke tornadoes or drop a giant cake on your opponents. The pilot who gets the most passengers safely to their destination wins.

We started working on Fly Together! almost 3 years ago, so to say that we've been looking forward to sharing this with you is an understatement.

When we made Conduct Together! from the same ingredients as Conduct This! we saw how good it was to reimagine a game for a new platform. We took great effort in developing it from a classic mobile game into a co-op console experience and everyone who played both, know that it turned into so much more than a port.

Fueled by the response to Conduct Together! we set out to do the same thing with another one of our popular games: Fly This!

However, it quickly became clear that turning the core gameplay of Fly This into a console experience would require us to develop a completely new way of controlling the game. Fly This is a game of creative planning and drawing flight paths and so to bring it to the big screen we'd have to make the Nintendo Switch do something it wasn't designed for.

Motion controls

t took us the better part of a year to develop and refine the tech to support Wii-style motion control and make it work as seamless as humanly possible on a console that doesn't natively support it. The game supports both stick & touch controls, but we're particularly proud of how fun it is to play with motion (once you get the hang of it).

Like with Conduct Together! we wanted Fly Together! to seamlessly transition from a singleplayer to a multiplayer experience. This is a lot harder than it sounds, as you need to think about balancing in the 100 levels or so in the game— scaling things from a solo pilot to a fleet of airplanes.

If that wasn't enough, we also wanted to add another dimension to this game. Co-Op is fun, but for it to truly be a great party game we added Battle mode; a completely new way of playing the game where you fly against your friends in hectic up-to-8-player battles.

This game is packed full of content, an 80-level campaign, 16 unique battle levels, 40 unlockable airplanes. We think you're going to love it— It's our most ambitious game yet,

Key Features:

  • Pilot planes in a beautiful 3D world with handheld, stick and motion controls.
  • Simple and intuitive gameplay for everyone
  • Seamlessly shift between single and multiplayer. Play as the solo pilot or pass Joy-Cons to friends for up to 8 players
  • Transport passengers, earn coins and unlock new airplanes
  • Progress through exotic islands with unique themes
  • Fantastic soundtrack by composer Mikkel Gemzøe

Fly Together! is coming to Nintendo Switch on April 29, 2021.
